Joe Cohen writes: “This project which I began ten years ago, but only finished in the last week, is performing beyond anything I could have expected. Speed controller and plinth (plywood with 15 2″ holes filled with lead shot and 1″ aluminum sub-plinth made by me.” 

Support stand designed by me using a Sound Mechanics platform for the top.) Platter, bearing and motor pod from Redpoint, Durand kairos tonearm and Ortofon Winfeld cartridge. Currently running a Hanss PA-30 phono preamp. Sound is as good as anything I have heard and we are only getting started.

I will be writing a blog about the whole process sometime soon. Meanwhile we are in bliss over here at Chez Cohen.
